Managed to get myself some pictures at 5am in the morning
My guessimate is over 100...
+ the 60 from the first batch.
I'm not too keen on being overrun with fry and I don't want the adults to be exhausted. So how do I give the adults a break?

I think that if the adults are exhausted then they will simply not breed?
I would probably reccomend just feeding high quality, varied foods and occasional protien

the only way to absolutly stop them breeding is to remove the male or the female from the tank. thats what i do but lucky for me i have several tanks to move them into.
The next best option is to remove the cave, the male will generally take longer to breed if he doesnt have a safe cave.
But if neither of these is an option then i would suggest the same as crichards, good, high quality diet. and let them do their thing. You will often find that there is two spawns in quick succession then a break while the fish get back into shape
